Over my years of scrapping I have used a LOT of chipboard and to say that I was excited when I saw a new tool for working with chipboard released by GCD Studios might have been an understatement.
I love the Chip Art tool - I love the texture it can provide so easily to a piece of what would otherwise be plain chipboard.
This is the layout that I created to demonstrate my technique ...
And this is how the chipboard will look when it is finished ...
All papers and embellishments on this layout are from the Homespun Chic range by Melody Ross.
For this technique I have used Lemon Maya Mist by Maya Road - it has awesome coverage and ends up with this beautiful gold metallic finish.
Step 1: Select a raw chipboard piece - I have used a flower from this set.
Step 2: Spray it thoroughly
Step 4: Before it is completely dry, use the Chip Art tool - you will see that the mist will absorb into the chipboard as soon as you apply the tool.
Step 5: Work around the chipboard piece
I love this effect and I know that I will keep experimenting with this great tool!
